Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia might miss up to five players when they take on league leaders Mathare United on Sunday.
K'Ogalo, who are laying a distant ninth with only six points, seven adrift of their Sunday's opponent, need a win to move up on the log.
But coach Hassan Oktay, who has only two wins so far this campaign, might have to do without the services of experienced players in a tough fixture with captain Harun Shakava, Joash Onyango and Kenneth Muguna all nursing knocks.
“I cannot guarantee their availability. Francis Mustafa has four stitches from the last game meaning he is definitely out, alongside goalkeeper Boniface Oluoch, it is going to be difficult for us.
"We have been playing well of late, creating chances which we did not take and now injuries. However we will give our best," Oktay told Goal.com.
Mathare United are topping the 18-team league table after five matches.
